Sydney's Dental Fund

My name is Sydney. The week of June 28th-4th was a pretty decent week, until my mother had informed me on the 4th that the loan that was going to pay for my dental surgery had been declined.

If you didn’t know, or you are new/missed the announcements on July 7th at 10:30AM I was suppose to have a surgery where they were going to take out 4 teeth, and my last 2 wisdom teeth. Along with the extractions they were going to put bone grafts on my jaw in preparation for permanent teeth implants.

These were the costs of everything, and the teeth being removed. This excludes the cost of wisdom teeth. The implants are also excluded because they would happen at a later date.

  Extractions: Teeth #4, 13, 18, 30. $300 per tooth.

Bone Grafting: Under teeth #4, 13, 18, 30. $400 per tooth.

Anaesthesia: Intravenous. (Being put to sleep for X amount of time). $685

Xray: Full 3D Xray. $90

The cost of implants will be about $790.

The cost of having my wisdom teeth removed is unknown to me.

The total cost of this surgery after insurance ($852 off) is approximately $2,723.00. That is with implant and wisdom teeth extraction costs taken out. WITH implants added, that’s $3,513.

Along with all of this, I no longer have any painkillers to control my pain. I've attempted to get something different to avoid OD and complications in the future, but I need an appointment with my doctor before doing that. 

I know I told you guys that I would never ask for money if it had to do with real life, that I would only use the money for stream related things. As some of you know, however, I’m in a great deal of pain constantly and I am currently taking about 300 MG of Codeine and 3000 MG of Acetaminophen daily. I shouldn’t even be functioning on that.

This surgery, or anticipation of it, is going to cause my mother to file for bankruptcy. I’ve been begging for a job, and I may have something in Landscaping which isn’t exactly what I should be doing. I’m going to have to spend the next 6 months to a year in pain because as a kid I didn’t listen to my mother and I didn’t take care of my teeth..

So please, after reading this, please know that I KNOW I messed up as a child. This is MY fault, and if I had listened I wouldn’t be in pain and I would not be here asking for your help. I know I messed up, but this is my second chance, and I honestly can’t do it without you guys. I’m begging for help at this point, and I don’t have any other way. I need you guys more than ever.

I’m sorry if this is asking for a lot, but even if I can have 1 tooth done at a time I’m willing to wait out the pain. Just know, that no matter what I do love you guys and you mean the world to me. You’ve all already helped me so much, and I’m sorry that I’m asking for your help again.

I've explored all other options, and this is my last shot. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

I will be adding photos of my teeth very very soon, please have patience with that part.
